Description Jonathan Mitchell 2016-03-03 23:39:07 UTC
I want to call the following constructor via the embedded API:

public CloudClient(Func<string, string> filePathCallback)

The API reports that a method cannot be found for signature .ctor(System.Func`2<string, string>)
When I dump out the class method names I see .ctor(System.Func`2<string, string>) listed.

Discussed on the list here:

Quoting the above:

It looks like a bug in mono_method_desc_new ():


The function is treating

	.ctor(System.Func`2<string, string>)

like a method with 2 arguments:

arg0 = System.Func`2<string
arg1 = string>

This is obviously wrong :)

The function is then storing the (wrong) argument count
for optimization purposes, and the comparison of methods
is starting to fail:

I put a pull request in on this here which seems to sort this on 4.0.0


4.2.0 will need this too
